This teeny ladder is handmade by me. I select the words that will show and carefully, slowly, roll the papers. It is a pretty sturdy little ladder.

The sides of the ladder say:

...His movements were quie...
...tell me you wear the same...
...he was ringing for you yester...
...I thought, as I sat across from...

other parts of words are visible on the rungs, like "in," and "it is," and "see"

This ladder is a reminder, a talisman, a symbol, a story. A ladder can take you up to something, or down to something. At the very least they bridge two different places and help get you somewhere that you otherwise wouldn't get, one step at a time. They are a physical reminder of the steps we have to take in order to accomplish things.

The size is about 1.75 inches high by a half inch wide.
